With the rise of fat bike racing and changing expectations for fat bike functionality, Stan's NoTubes is on a mission to redefine what a fat bike is capable of with the Hugo 52 27. 5in Wheelset. Built to roll fast and hard through everything from technical snow covered trails to wide open meadows of pristine powder, this wheelset will turn your fat bike into an agile whip that can tackle any snowy adventure. The Hugos utilize Stan's NoTubes tubeless technology with its signature raised center box section and low profile sidewalls that combine to provide a light, fast rolling ride that minimizes pinch flat risk compared to traditional rims. The raised box sections offer up a widened platform to support the tire and spread out the ground contact patch, which helps distribute the force of big bumps. The low profile side walls sit nearly even with the raised center to further distribute the force and reduce the chances of a high pressure pinch point. This means less time shivering in the snow wrestling with flats and more time frolicking in the powder. As you may have heard, Stan's has built its brand on providing riders with an enjoyable and confident tubeless experience. Its Bead Socket Technology leads the industry in reliable tubeless design, and the Hugos take full advantage of this feature for a fat or 27. 5 plus platform that's easy to inflate and boasts an impeccable seal. For riders holding on to traditional tubes, the Hugos can also be run with tubes and still reap the benefits of their pinch flat reducing technology. Either way, the Hugos provide a sprightly ride to shred the snow float across sand, rocks, curbs, railroad ties you get the idea. Stan's laces the Hugo rims to its 3. 30 Disc hubs with Sapim Custom Force spokes for a super smooth and solid ride. The Stan's No Tubes Hugo 52 27. 5in Wheelset is compatible with 27. 5 plus tires ranging from 2. 8 to 4in. If you're after a tubeless setup which we strongly recommend with the Hugo make sure ...
